    Default How Ron Hill Would Plan for a 20 HP Four Stroke Class

    I think, number one would be to establish a "Soap Box Derby" class. Also known as DIY 20 HP Class>

    This boat would be old school. Like 10'6" long, 22 inch bottom, fin on the bottom, 10" high sides. I'd have a transom pattern and a center rib pattern.

    This would be a sit down class, designed to be built with Home Depot wood and a 200 pound driver. Driver would be required to sit in front of mid ships (5 feet, 3 inches from the inside the transom).

    If I can get Ernie Dawe to build one, I will make templates of the transom and center rib...

    Soap Box Derby Class

    Every race would consist of:

    1. Two rules at a slalom course for time. As a chance to see if the driver can drive.
    2. Two 15 lap qualifiers.
    3. Double elimination 660 Drags
    4. 30 Lap main event
    Total points for the top three trophies.

    I would still encourage 3 lap heats in B Hydro and B Runabout....

    5. There would be a Youth Class, 10-14 years olds , that runs one 15 lap heat.
